OK that film took me by surprise. How can a film about a gummybear be so moving?

I love the poetry of this film and the utter goofiness of using gummi bears to tell the story!

Subject: Death of a Gay Gummi Bear
Steven,the gay gummi bear,VO's his suicide note to Patrick,a gay gummi bear with a mustache.
It is not made clear were Steven is from,but apparently he has moved from there to America,leving Patrick of the Green eyes behind.
America is a land where people "spit in your face to offend you",Apparently people spit in your face for other reasons in his homeland.
Unfortunately half of the shots of our hero are out of focus,at first I thought this was a style choice,perhaps viewing the world through teary eyes,but apparently it was infact poor camera work.
Perhaps they should use something larger for the remake,Or expend there energies on something involving people,not confectionary.
Reasonable choice of score,suitably sad for a film on alienation and suicide,But they really lost the plot when the made the characters Gummi bears.
But full marks for having a crew member with the title of "Pigeon offender"
